Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Made­line Mul­hol­land Mon­treal

Sun­ny­side School is host­ing a Com­mu­nity Tal­ent Show at the school on June 2nd, 6:30 PM. By ‘com­mu­nity’ they don’t mean their stu­dents, but ev­ery­body from the larger com­mu­nity. This means stu­dents may have to share the spot­light with Un­cle Bob, who plays a mean set of spoons, and Aunt Sally, who be­lieves her ven­tril­o­quist act with the aard­vark sock pup­pet is ac­tu­ally funny. The tal­ent show is an op­por­tu­nity for ev­ery fam­ily mem­ber to get on stage and show the com­mu­nity their hid­den, or not so hid­den, tal­ents.

Au­di­tions are be­ing held at the school on May 12th, at the end of the school day.

The ob­jec­tive of this event is three­fold. The funds raised from the event will go to­ward the pur­chase of a new sound sys­tem for the gym­na­sium. The rais­ing of funds and or­ga­niza- tion of the event con­trib­ute to the stu­dents’ con­fi­dence and sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity, while at the same time of­fer­ing the chil­dren and their fam­i­lies a fun-filled evening to­gether in the chil­dren’s learn­ing mi­lieu. Just to add to the al­lure, teach­ers will be per­form­ing as well, so that in it­self should make the evening worth the rice of ad­mis­sion.

In or­der to make the evening a suc­cess, com­mu­nity mem­bers are be­ing called upon to step out of their com­fort zone and con­sider tak­ing the stage in the name of a good cause. The au­di­tions will take place May 12th at Sun­ny­side at the end of the school day.

There will also be baked goods and cof­fee sold at the event as part of the fundraiser. Tick­ets are be­ing sold by stu­dents and can also be pur­chased at the school of­fice. Ad­vance tick­ets are $3, and there is a $4 charge for tick­ets at the door.
